Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson

Keep Us Off that Big Screen!

EXCLUSIVE

0405-bradley-cooper-liam-neeson-tmzBradley Cooper and Liam Neeson love being on the big screen ... well all except one, and they're royally pissed off.

The two stars have filed a lawsuit against two home theater companies, claiming they plastered their pics on advertisements without permission. The ads show a screen grab from "The A-Team" featuring the 2 actors on a big projection screen.

Aside from the fact that "The A-Team" is no way to sell a movie product ... Cooper/Neeson want Vutec Corp. and First Impressions Theme Theaters to stop the ads STAT and they want damages to boot.

In the lawsuit, Neeson points out he's won many acting awards, and been nominated more than 30 times including Oscar and Golden Globe nods for "Schindler's List."  Cooper says he's been nominated too, and he's won some, including the ShoWest Convention Award for Comedy Star of the Year -- but not an Oscar.

We love it when a plan comes together.

Rumor has it that Neeson's got one of the biggest schlongs in the biz so be shouldn't worry about a thing. Cooper's a lightweight.

I don't think that they need to be suing anyone, They make enough money. With that being said, I like Liam Neeson but I think he's a little overexposed.
Bradley Cooper is a douche. He sucks as an actor, his films suck. He may be good looking to some people but he's ugly to me because of his douchiness.

Sure, like they write their own legal do***ents. If this is even true, their attorney included the stuff about their awards, and it would have been for a reason. I do understand the lawsuit. You wouldn't like it either if someone was using your image for profit without your permission.

I don't understand why they are upset. Nobody would think they are endorsing the company just because their movie is the example on the screen and it should be a compliment that their movie is the one being shown. Maybe they don't want people reminded that they were in "The A-Team" but whose fault is that?

The company doesn't need their permission for that, just like movie companies don't need permission to have products in their movies.

The last line of that story should have been " We love it when 2 douches come together".
